This announcement is overdue, because i wasn’t ready. I was tangled up emotionally in the loss of my Master Trainer role/closure of Beachbody Live operations which I posted about, only once, a couple of months ago.
Soon after that announcement I went to a yoga class feeling sadness like a burnt coffee aftertaste. I was silently sulking in my loss of identity (ego), chewing my bottom lip about the impending dip in income and worrying about the hundreds of instructors I’d trained over 6 year’s time.
I wore all that into that studio like a coat that didn’t fit me quite right.
The yoga teacher talked about how we sometimes need to give something up to grow in new ways. It was the right message and the right time. Even though I didn’t give anything up- I had something I was devoted to...disappear- I figured: same difference.
I decided that very Sunday night to EXHALE ... and relinquish my pride about the loss of title and to dismiss my apprehensions and to “lean into” (an expression only those as obsessed with Brene Brown as I am say) the fact that there would be more room, not just on my calendar, but in my soul. And almost as immediately as I had silently made new promises to myself oxygen rushed in . My creative side and my entrepreneurial side combusted.
I’ve created a fitness program. It’s called @warriorrhythm and it’s for all my rowdy, awkward, yoga-ish friends that just wanna work harder and calm down more all that the same time. And it’s definitely for those who don’t care about matching socks literally or metaphorically.
Live class Tuesday’s in Eugene, OR.
1st VIRTUAL CLASS available now.
Thank you for all you support. I love you guys.
